One of the my favorite things to do is to be able go through my client’s makeup bag. It‘s so FUN! You can learn a lot about a woman through her makeup bag. Plus, I also love to see the products they pick and learn why. Essentially, this is what I do on a Beauty Discovery Call. I meet up with women virtually or in person and we talk about how they can improve or update their look. Quite often women go to the makeup store or get online and spend LOTS of money on products but still can‘t seem to figure out why their makeup look doesn’t come together.
Wearing makeup well is definitely about technique, but you also have to have the essential products and tools. On these calls I realize that ladies are missing key products. So today let’s go over some key things you need in your makeup bag.
Primer is what helps your makeup to last throughout the day and helps your makeup to appear smooth. Depending on the primer it will helps to control shine as well.
Foundation is the product that gives you an all even skin tone as well as protects your skin from the sun‘s UV rays. Helping your skin to appear even in texture and healthy color. It’s important that your foundation matches or else it can make your skin look worse, older, or even dry or patchy. Which defeats the purpose of wearing it.
Concealer is a “miracle worker.” This cosmetic covers blemishes, dark circles, and hyperpigmentation. It can also help to highlight areas of the face as well.
Powder is one my favs! It‘s designed to “set” or “hold” your makeup application all day. It also creates a smooth, matte finish. This cosmetic can come is a pressed, a loose form.
5. Brow Pencil
We all know how important the brow is and how it shapes the face. This pencil helps to create that formed natural shape.
6. Eyeliner + Mascara
Eyeliner can be a pencil, gel, or even powder. It is placed along your top and bottom lash line to bring out your eyes. Whether it’s a thin line or cat eye it can help to naturally lift your eyes.
Mascara is a colored wand that extends your top and bottom lashes to make them look full or long Or both! I don’t go anywhere without my mascara. Neither should you :)
7. Blush + Bronzer
Blush can be a powder or creme thats placed on the apple of your cheeks to add color. It helps to accentuate and lift your cheeks. Allowing you to look friendly and lively.
Bronzer is a girls best friend. It’s a metallic, creme, or liquid base that is placed on the pit skirts of your face to immulate a sun-kissed glow. It helps to enhance the dimension into your face and highlight your profile.
Lipstick is a cosmetic that applies color, texture and protection to the lips. This product can also shape and accentuate your lips.
9. Brush Set
Don‘t forget that you need the tools to apply these products on with!
These are some of the basic things you need in your makeup bag. Remember that each product plays an important role to help you achieve a pretty polished makeup look.
